Lucky Number Seven: Sox-Angels Gamer II

Clearly, the Angels are bad enough to give us hope that the seventh quest for a win in six days will be the charm. It’s a busy night in our household, so this is as much of a gamer preview as you get. Sorry.

    TJ August 23, 2006, 10:09 pm
  • they need to get Pedroia’s picture on yahoo not Dustin Mohr’s.

    TJ August 23, 2006, 10:11 pm
  • slowest safe signal i’ve ever seen on Crisps sstolen base… pretty much a 5 count

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:11 pm
  • Covelli sees six pitches in his first at-bat. He saw a combined five in his first 2 ABs last nite, although he did hit a leadoff double that was wasted.

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:23 pm

    Cano doubled in both runs.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:26 pm
  • Lester grooves one down the pike for Vlad, who doubles in OC

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:27 pm

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:27 pm

    TJ August 23, 2006, 10:35 pm
  • YES!!!! LET’S GO, LET’S GO, LET’S GO!!!
    Let’s hope Escobar is the victim of a lot of Red Sox frustration!

  • Work the count, Covelli.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:36 pm
  • WOOOOOOOO Covelli!

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:37 pm
  • Covelli clutch!

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:37 pm
  • I think Coco is upset by Gordon Edes saying today that Coco’s Sox career will probably end with the season.

    TJ August 23, 2006, 10:38 pm
  • he’s probably more upset with his subpar play. i doubt edes is saying anything he’s not thinking anyway

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:39 pm
  • I was thinking on the way home that I was still looking forward to Sox baseball, damn it, and it’s been a good night so far.

    Devine August 23, 2006, 10:39 pm
  • Pedroia already showing his aptitude for making contact on tough pitches.

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:41 pm
  • Me, too, Devine.
    I really enjoy listening to the games every night. I feel lost when they have a day off. So even though the last 6 weeks have been a disaster, this still is what I do inthe evenings.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:42 pm
  • I was wrong on Hernandez’ 1st inning pitch count. It was 32, and he’s up to 45 after 2. Doubleplay-Rod sitting out tonight. Still 2-0 Yankees.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:44 pm
  • I hafta say I’m a big fan of Pedroia batting high in the lineup. Get him more at bats, let him get used to it now so it’s not a shock next year… Sox offense breaking out of the slump it appears :-D

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 10:45 pm
  • OK, let’s say Theo is looking to deal Covelli. What do you do in CF next year? Andruw?
    Ellsbury?
    Thoughts anyone?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:45 pm
  • Strange. I was looking forward to this game too. Heh.

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 10:46 pm
  • agreed, paul. initial impression is he’s a Loretta-esque contact hitter, which is a good fit for the 2 spot.

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:46 pm
  • Jones is a free agent right? Sign him and trade Crip/Hansen/prospect for Oswalt…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 10:47 pm
  • sounds eerily familiar

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:48 pm
  • Leadoff walk. Bad Lester!
    Question for discussion: Are Lester’s recent struggles the manifestation of luck catching up with him or worsening mechanics/tiring arm/inexperience/etc?

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 10:49 pm
  • Ick…no walky, please. Still…out #1.

    Devine August 23, 2006, 10:49 pm
  • I think we all would be fine with losing Hansen and a mid-level prospect for Oswalt, and Crisp would seal the deal if we signed Jones. I’d love that deal to death…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 10:50 pm
  • Paul, I say both.
    It’s generally agreed that he should be in P’tucket. He’s here because the situation is dire.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:51 pm
  • Then of course Clemens will sign with the Sox, thus setting up our Schilling/Clemens/Oswalt/Beckett/Wakefield rotation with Lester and Papelbon as backup/long relief/closer, plus Delcarmen and Snyder perhaps.
    That’d rock.

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 10:52 pm
  • i think it’s inexperience, but i know very little about the mechanical end of things. Still, his ERA is lower than Beckett’s, FWIW

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:53 pm
  • Schilling/Oswalt/Papelbon/Beckett/Wakefield is halfway reasonable

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:55 pm
  • After the walk, everything’s cool. Even more runs, por favor!

    Devine August 23, 2006, 10:55 pm
  • Get Jones; resign Loretta for 2 years.
    Then your order is Pedroia, Loretta, Manny, Papi, Jones, Varitek, Pena, Lowell, Youkilis. I’d love to have Yooks get more ABs, but that’s a helluvaguy to have at No. 9. Figure Pena platoons in right, which would switch the order. …
    Then there the pitching.
    Schill, Beckett, Wakes, Lester, Paps, Foulke … and the rest. Let MDC start the season at P’tucket.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:55 pm
  • Well yes, airk, but I was having fun :-P I’d gladly replace Clemens with Papelbon, but the Clemens possibility is there, and that is fun to imagine…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 10:56 pm
  • 36 pitches through 2. Not great but better than recent starts.
    Viewers, is Lester throwing with confidence?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 10:57 pm
  • It seems safe to guess that if Clemens returns next year it will be in a half-year deal similar to this one.

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:58 pm
  • roger loves him some drama

    airk August 23, 2006, 10:59 pm
  • They’re never gonna take Papi outts No. 3, I don’t think, and I don’t see Francona batting Youk ninth.
    Pedroia/Loretta/Ortiz/Ramirez/Jones/Pena/Youkilis/Varitek/Lowell is more likely I think…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 10:59 pm
  • damn that’s a good lineup

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:03 pm
  • Really, when you’re talking about those bats — and Varitek’s bounceback year ;-) — really no lineup is a bad one…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:03 pm
  • My bad. I didn’t mean to swap Manny/Papi.
    Yeah, look at that lineup. That’s a damn good lineup. See, we fixed the wreck with two deals.
    Theo, you paying attention?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:05 pm
  • Considering how close both those deals came to being done this year, I imagine those will be high-priority over the offseason…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:05 pm
  • This is a great site foir upcoming free agents, u can search by position.
    http://www.mlb4u.com/freeagency.php?field=position
    best avail CF free agent this year is Juan Pierre, Jim Edmonds and Torri Hunter

    TJ August 23, 2006, 11:07 pm
  • Ah so it would have to be a trade to get Jones. That makes it more difficult…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:08 pm
  • ANd none of the said CFR free agents have Scott Boras for an agent so thats always a plus.

    TJ August 23, 2006, 11:08 pm
  • -R

    TJ August 23, 2006, 11:09 pm
  • Lester doing his thing — allowing the leadoff man to reach, followed by two quick outs…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:10 pm
  • Well, OCab’s on my fantasy team, but that’s about the only positive thing to say. So, as the announcers say…walk Vladdy or no?

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:11 pm
  • Hunter would be the only one that interests me, and he’s on the wrong side of 30. Pierre and Coco Crisp strike me as very similar players, except that Pierre slumped even worse than Crisp this year, and Edmonds is too old/injured/inconsistent to be any better than Crisp.

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:12 pm
  • Eeeeeee.

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:13 pm
  • They’re nibbling. Good move…
    No real good starters either — Schmidt’s too old and I think would have AL troubles, and all the others are either not good enough for the AL or too old…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:14 pm
  • Bases loaded 2 outs. Time for a Lester bases loaded split check…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:15 pm
  • Pierre’s been a big disappointment for the Cubs.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:17 pm
  • I’d assume what ever Theo does will be with the thinking CF will be Elsburys to lose in 2009, perhaps even 2008

    TJ August 23, 2006, 11:17 pm
  • Hitters up to a more respectable .286 (4 for 14) against Lester with the bases loaded…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:17 pm
  • dammit

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:19 pm
  • Effin’ hell.

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:19 pm
  • True. Ellsbury will be part of the equation soon.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:19 pm
  • And now .333 — 5 for 15 :-P
    Dang, Lester.

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:20 pm
  • The Sox better not screw off this lead. I hate the mf’ing Angels, stupid rally monkeyloving, @#%$!

    bloodyank78 August 23, 2006, 11:21 pm
  • Thank god, F Juan Rivera.

    bloodyank78 August 23, 2006, 11:21 pm
  • *sigh*
    Still a 2-run lead though. Need more runs!

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:22 pm
  • In reality, I think most people expect Crisp to improve exponentially next year. The wrist injury really affected him more than the transition to Boston, I think… If that’s the case, and he turns into the .300/.400/.500 guy we think he can be, adding 40 to 50 steals and his defense, that’s a Top 3 CF…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:24 pm
  • I definitely think the best CF option is stick with Crisp, though there’s no way in hell he should lead off.

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:25 pm
  • And clearly getting a topline starter should remain a top priority for this club. So I say we go after Oswalt hard…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:26 pm
  • No, Crisp is too aggressive for leadoff, and unless he morphs into Nomar Garciaparra, he’s a potentially incredible jumpstart to the bottom part of the lineup, putting himself on base for guys like Tek and Youk with the top of the order coming up…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:27 pm
  • Mussina’s a FA. I’m just sayin’

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:27 pm
  • A weak inning from the Sox bats — two quick Ks and a first-pitch tapper to the pitcher. Yuck.

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:28 pm
  • They are letting Escobar off the hook.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:28 pm
  • Yanks have an option on Moose. He’s not going anywhere (near Boston)….

    yankeemonkey August 23, 2006, 11:29 pm
  • Manny out of game.

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:29 pm
  • I thought Manny should have caught the Pierre single, but now he’s out with the hammy, so that might explain something.

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:29 pm
  • Oh, thanks yankeemonkey. I’ll interpret that as code for “He’ll be in Boston by Thanksgiving.”

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:30 pm
  • Manny out again…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:30 pm
  • Awww, now, yankeemonkey, we just shootin’ the breeze…

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:30 pm
  • Dude, that Crisp catch becomes very big in the face of that double.

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:30 pm
  • Manny is obviously faking it.

    Dan Shaughnessy August 23, 2006, 11:31 pm
  • :-)

    yankeemonkey August 23, 2006, 11:31 pm
  • Annnd I’m late to the party on that one… Was Manny upset about the scorer’s decision somewhere during this game? I’m sure Dan Shaughnessy and Sean mcAdam will find one for him to be upset about… Or maybe MacMullen can question the veracity of his injury again now that he’s been taken out a third game…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:32 pm
  • YM is bored. CMW eating Seattle alive.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:32 pm

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:33 pm

  • Johnny Damon: 20 for his last 45. Just sayin’…

    yankeemonkey August 23, 2006, 11:34 pm
  • lol, Devine, didn’t notice that…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:35 pm
  • watch the Sox deal for Damon this offseason.

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:35 pm
  • Hey, YM. What about the name? Why “yankeemonkey”?

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:35 pm
  • Sorry, YM, is that the number of bounces his throws take to second base?

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:35 pm
  • Can I assume that Shaughnessy’s penchant for stating the obvious means he’s working on another book?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:36 pm
  • Thank goodness.

    Devine August 23, 2006, 11:36 pm
  • Lester with a big K

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:36 pm
  • Way to finish him off, kid!!!

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:37 pm
  • Maybe “Joe” is Dan Shaughnessy.
    Where is Joe, by the way.
    I mean, by teh way?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:38 pm
  • Incidentally, Edes’ chat is interesting today, not just for the Crispy tidbit…
    I ran into a veteran player at the team hotel last night, and he insisted that Manny was hurting, the injury was legit, and that Manny was worn down from chasing all those balls launched all over left field by the Bombers last weekend. Manny’s 34 now, remember. The whole team is exhausted right now, including Papi.
    Completely contradicting his crummy columnist colleagues at the Globe…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:39 pm
  • I get the feeling by reading between the lines that Shaughnessy isn’t well liked by his Globe colleagues.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:41 pm
  • yeah, Edes is a pro. the globe sports section is so frustrating.

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:41 pm

    Curse of the Curly Haired Boyfriend?

    Tom sf August 23, 2006, 11:42 pm
  • At least Shaughnessy loves himself.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:42 pm
  • Any Sox fan knows there was no Curse of the Bambino until Shaughnessy wrote that damned book.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:43 pm
  • Shaughnessy is suffering from what so many great sports columniusts have suffered — fame. He was part of those great Globe sports sctions, with Gammons and Ryan and Will McDonough, etc.
    The problem is he’s the only one to think he’s better than the players he covers. Ryan and Gammons are joys to read and watch analyze the game. Shaughnessy is a pretentious fool. That’s just too bad because he’s actually a talented writer…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:46 pm
  • shaughnessy’s whole career is pretty much churning out the day’s talking points for sleazy, inflammatory sports radio shows.

    airk August 23, 2006, 11:46 pm
  • Shaughnessy does seem more interested in his name than the substance of what he writes. I tend not to bash print media members (because I am one), but Shaughnessy has lost the way…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:49 pm
  • Anyone remember Ray Fitzgerald? I grew up reading him and Leigh Montville as the Globe columnists. Gammo on baseball, Ryan on basketball, McDonaugh (SP?) on football…those were the best.

    Tom sf August 23, 2006, 11:50 pm
  • I’m inclined to agree with Paul.
    Shaughnessy didn’t start churning out the dreck until he got famous.
    And Paul you forgot Leigh Montville.
    I loved his stuff.
    Dupont always seems full of himself, but he’s a good reporter and writer.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 23, 2006, 11:54 pm
  • Lester lovin that double play ball…

    Paul SF August 23, 2006, 11:55 pm
  • Wow, two men on, nobody out, Lester ay 94 pitches. Two throws later, the inning’s over and Lester’s (hopefully) finished at 96 pitches. Very nice recovery…

  • Paul, I worked in sports in Iowa for 12 years, then a copy editor and then a news editor in suburban Chicago, where the competition is overwhelming and common sense nonexistent.
    I lost my job 5 months ago in a cost-cutting consolidation and won’t go back. I work as a media consultant contractor now.

  • Wow, yeah, it’s a bad time to be in print journalism, but I love it too much. I cover City Hall, military and politics…
    Was that Hinske’s first hit since his Sox debut?

  • Ray Fitzgerald Is Dead at 55; Sports Columnist in Boston
    Print Save
    UPI
    Published: August 5, 1982
    Ray Fitzgerald, an acclaimed sports columnist for The Boston Globe, died Tuesday at Brigham and Women’s Hospital after a long illness. He was 55 years old.
    Mr. Fitzgerald, a versatile writer, covered many sports for the newspaper for 17 years. He began writing his column in 1975, taking over after the retirement of the veteran columnist Harold Kaese.
    The columns were known for quips and tongue-in-cheek humor, characteristics that helped Mr. Fitzgerald win the Massachusetts Sportswriter of the Year Award 11 times in balloting by sportswriters across the state.

    You ever cover the courthouse?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:03 am
  • I know there’s Gammons stuff out there, but I think it would be a great service to sports journalism and sports history alike for the Globe to publish a book containing the best game stories and columns from the Globe’s writers in the 70s and 80s. Not only would that include the great Celtics and Bruins years, but it would include some of the most famous baseball games in history, as well as provide a textbook on how to write good sports copy…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:04 am
  • Covered cops and courts here for two years before this beat opened up. Loved covering the courthouse. If there was a way to cover politics and courts without killing myself (and there’s not), I’d do it in a flash…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:05 am
  • I believe there are Fitzgerald books out there, probably OOP (but likely available on amazon). I only know him by reputation.

  • airk August 24, 2006, 12:08 am

  • The sports editor for many of those Globe years died recently… I know cuz he also was editor of the Dallas Morning News sports section and really built it into a powerhouse during his time in Texas… Not sure if it received a lot of mention in Boston. I imagine it did… But that’s what first got me to thinking about those great Globe writers of that era and how many are now nationally respected figures, Hall of Famers and all that…

    airk August 24, 2006, 12:23 am
  • Only one run out fo that, thank God… But can we put in a real pitcher for the seventh, please? Even if it’s Timlin, he’s better than Tavarez…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:23 am
  • I wish people wouldn’t stick to the stupid “closer must only come in the 8/9th inning”. A closer needs to _save_ the game…sometimes the saving needs to be done earlier.
    I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but still….

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 12:24 am
  • yankeemonkey, why your name? The reason I ask was ’cause I wondered if it was a mockery of “rally monkey”–though I realize that probably has nothing to do with it.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:24 am
  • Never liked the Riske trade. Don’t know how he’s doing right now, but something tells me it’s better than the Orc…

    Stupid, stupid Red Sox. Anyone actually believe the bullpen can hold a one-run lead?

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:30 am
  • Never did understand that Riske trade. He seemed fine the few innings he pitched for the Sox.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:31 am
  • The Riske trade. … The Mirabelli trade. Cla Meredith has an ERA in the 1s. Hasn’t allowed a run since July.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:31 am
  • we pretty much traded away our only good offseason bullpen pickup and got nothing for him. So… we’ve got that going for us.

    airk August 24, 2006, 12:32 am
  • So let’s make sure we’ve all got this straight.
    The one pitcher Theo Epstein brought in for the bullpen this season that actually is not pouring gasoline on every fire he’s asked to extinguish was traded away two months into the season…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:32 am
  • Who did Sox get for Riske?

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 12:32 am
  • Javier Lopez, the pitcher. He is crap.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:33 am
  • Devine, Theo realized he screwed up by not re-signing Myers. the thought was that Foulke would get the leftys out. then foulke went down. the theo clutched. A bad move. The only midseason move i’ve liked was Hinske.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:33 am
  • Are they gonna try Foulke in the 8th (if Timlin makes it) or what? Papelbon for 2?

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:33 am
  • Javier Lopez… A guy if I remember right who was “tough on lefties but would make righties uncomfortable too.”
    Lefties are batting .333 against him, righties a mere .286…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:34 am
  • arghhhhhhhhhhhhh

    airk August 24, 2006, 12:34 am
  • Oh boy, here we go… Cabrera has killed us all game long…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:35 am
  • Booooo, O-Cab. Slightly tempered “Booooo” for Timlin (he’s old, clearly declining fast).

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:35 am
  • Javier Lopez, the catcher, is crap, too.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:35 am
  • Oh…I thought Riske went to Cleveland for some reason.

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 12:35 am
  • I might have this wrong, but I think I remember Francona saying they traded Riske because he wasn’t pitching him enough… So the one decent guy Francona doesn’t play and Theo trades, but we get to watch Seanez and Tavarez blow up ballgames for us all season long.
    Yay bullpen management!

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:36 am
  • Come on, Timlin.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:36 am
  • Got Riske from Cleveland in the Crisp deal.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:36 am
  • Bad Devine. No booing Timlin. He is un-booable…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:37 am
  • Remember, Riske was on the DL on opening day.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:37 am
  • I’ll give you that, Paul. But tell me you haven’t had the urge recently. AND he threw the bats under the bus with that one quote when clearly pitching has been the problem this year.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:38 am
  • He was on the DL after his first appearance, actually… Then came off and was little used for a couple weeks before the trade…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:38 am
  • I get a back ache just from watching Mike Myers’ pitching mechanics…that can’t be healthy.

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 12:40 am
  • ground ball, ground ball

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:41 am
  • Yeah that staement was out of line, but the guy was frustrated after a game in which it was the offense’s fault they lost.
    But a guy who fired his agent because all he wanted to do was keep playing for the Sox at whatever price, who worked roughly 3.81 million games in 2003, 2004 and 2005, often holding together the bullpen himself? Not to mention the mentoring of Hansen Delcarmen and Papelbon…
    Too much good stuff to let that comment overshadow it…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:41 am
  • Yeah, I forgot Riske came with Crisp…shows how much I pay attention.

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 12:41 am
  • Riske had one bad outing before the injury, then pitched in 6 games for the Sox. 4 were scoreless outings, including 2.1 innings of scoreless relief in Yankee Stadium.

    airk August 24, 2006, 12:43 am
  • Somehow that doesn’t score the run. Loaded.

  • PAPELBON PLEASE

    airk August 24, 2006, 12:44 am
  • The bad outing was caused by the injury. He pitched poorly, went on the DL, came back, did well, was traded. Sure could use him, ohhh… right here!

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:45 am
  • How in God’s name are the Sox still leading?

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:45 am

  • SOMEHOW he escapes. My goodness.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:47 am

  • Gettin too late for me.. ciao, all!

    airk August 24, 2006, 12:48 am
  • So, it’s a no-brainer right? Papelbon for six outs — because… well, you just have to…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:48 am
  • Foulke was up.
    Hey, guys, um, insurance runs here?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:49 am
  • Ohhhh, he’s still in there, huh? Can’t say I blame ’em. He’s been mowing ’em down since the 3rd. Damn you, Crisp!

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:50 am

    And yes, I know I’m an evil cold-hearted person.

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 12:50 am

  • Halos are saving their bullpen tonight.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 12:52 am
  • This is the part where the Sox give up the tying run and lose it in extras.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:52 am
  • 7 pitches. COME ON!!!!!!!

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:52 am
  • Pssh, YM, if Paps pitches tonight like he did against NY, the Angels don’t even make contact with the ball during those six outs…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:52 am
  • Devine has point, he came in w/0 outs, bases juiced.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 12:53 am
  • I know, Devine. That’s what I meant. Bringing him in to start the 8th was a no-brainer. Sadly, it didn’t happen. Did Francona learn from his mistakes? We shall see….
    In all seriousness, I’d like the Sox to win if only because I hate the Angels.

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 12:54 am
  • And allowed one to score, thank you, bloodyank. There was nothing to be ashamed of in that outing, though, ya know, I wish he hadn’t let Cabrera hit that massive double.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:54 am
  • It’s Foulke. Which isn’t a bad move if this were last inning. But it’s not. It’s the eighth, the lead’s only one run, and we NEED this win.

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:55 am
  • Pap was incredible. The Melky double was his only mistake, really…Kapler should’ve caught that bloop. It’s all history now, though.
    And Foulke is in.

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 12:56 am
  • Oh cool, YM. It was a pretty strange set of moves by Francona that game.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:56 am
  • Timlin faced the tougher outs. Foulke will face 9-1-2.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 12:57 am
  • Dern. 1 out, 1 on.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:58 am

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 12:58 am
  • Dotel’s looking sharp.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 12:59 am
  • NOT a defensive catcher.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 12:59 am
  • Hello, my name is Yankeemonkey and I hate Chone Figgins.

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 1:00 am
  • Can Papelbon get Cabrera out? No one else has.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:00 am
  • What do you do with OC? He’s 3-3.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:01 am
  • I bet I hate CHO-NAY more than you YM.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:01 am
  • Maybe shoulda but Mirabelli in there for defense with Figgins coming up in the order? The SB erases the inning-ending DP, and now Figgins is one Javy Lopez “wild pitch” away from tying this game…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:01 am
  • Paps, it’s blue-ribbon time.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:02 am
  • Come on Paps (I can’t believe I just said that)

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:03 am
  • According to BP, Papelbon is second in the league in the intensity of the situations into which he’s brought… And we see why yet again…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:03 am
  • I hope the Rally Monkey gets poached.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:03 am
  • You and me both, BY….What’s wrong with us?!

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 1:04 am
  • I’m not gonna say Kapler should have caught that ball, YM. Though maybe he should’ve played a bit more in, knowing Jeter’s MO. Credit to Jeter for the good swing on the tough pitch.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:04 am
  • Paul, who’s first?

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 1:05 am
  • 1-2 count.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:05 am
  • Come on, throw the splitter now.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:05 am
  • Oh, so there is a degree-of-difficulty metric for pitching situations? I’ll have to check that out.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:06 am

    I live among Halo fans, I hate the Angels more than the plague.

  • PAPELBON! :-D

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:08 am
  • Your Golden Boy just punked OC.
    (Disclaimer: If the Yanks had lost tonight I would not be doing this)

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:08 am
  • Ohhhhh…6 hits for Boston to the Angels’ 11. Someone score runs, for f***’s sake.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:09 am
  • Yay!

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 1:09 am
  • BY, you hear any more on the Cuban defectors?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:09 am
  • Hector Carrasco, acquired by the Red Sox from the Twins for Lew Ford.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:10 am
  • If it turns out that way, this is gonna be a tough loss for Escobar. What a turnaround from his beginning.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:11 am
  • Nada amigo.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:11 am
  • I;m having trouble finding it now, Devine and YM. It was a stat of the day a week or so ago, and I’m not a subscriber so I can’t find it now :-P

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:11 am
  • The Izturis brothers are awesome fielders. I bet those two messed around so much as kids w/the ball and glove.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:13 am
  • Paps looks brain-dead in the dugout, mouth open, eyes glazed.
    I could care less, as long as his arm works.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:13 am
  • Paul, do you remember the gist? Like, did it count the number of inherited baserunners they got or something?

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:14 am
  • Carrasco looks like a skinny Rich Garces.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:14 am
  • Well have you heard the music he listens to? It’s no wonder…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:15 am
  • What kinda music is it, Paul?

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:15 am
  • Guerrero, Rivera, Quinlan 4-9 tonight with 3 walks.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:16 am
  • Holy crap. I think Foulke has pitched 4 innings with 0 runs scored.
    HE’S BACK!!!
    (I’m kidding.)
    Come on, Papelbon…

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:17 am
  • He got Vlad.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:18 am
  • It’s called Most Leveraged relievers. Tyler Walker is first, at 2.18. Papelbon second, at 2.11…

  • Devine, Papelbon listens to country :-P Blech…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:19 am
  • You probably get your fill in Texas, eh? (More than your fill, I’m guessin’.) Cool stat on LEV.
    I like some country, but the modern stuff seems more and more generic.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:20 am
  • He’s from LA, give a break Paul.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:21 am
  • If Manny goes on DL, do you call up Murphy?
    Ellsbury?

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:22 am
  • Paps is dope.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:22 am
  • See Jon pitch.
    Pitch, Jon, pitch.
    1 more.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:22 am
  • Actually thought he was from Texas, BY?

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:22 am
  • 2

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:22 am
  • I’m a rock and metal guy myself…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:23 am
  • What kinda metal, Paul? I tend to like metal I think of as “not sludgy”. There still has to be melody in all that distortion.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:23 am
  • I appreciate why you Soxfans love this guy so much.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:24 am
  • Paps went to Mississippi state, high school in Jax, Fla.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:24 am
  • OVAH!! F off Angel fans.

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:25 am
  • 3!

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:25 am
  • He’s quite good, ain’t he, BY?
    Not the best game, but a win.
    The bullpen barely holds it.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:25 am
  • Devine, really a lot of different kinds… I love the old school Queensryche/Dream Theater-style prog metal, also love some really good heavy Pantera/Avenged Sevenfold/Shadows Fall stuff…
    Favs though will always be Metallica/Megadeth/Iced Earth style thrash…
    AND FINALLY!!! A win! :-D Sweet relief!

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:26 am
  • Well, it is what it is. A win.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:26 am
  • Paul, I thought I read somewhere he was from Lousiana, I’m probably wrong. Anyway, have a good night guys!

    bloodyank78 August 24, 2006, 1:27 am
  • Sleep well, all.
    Thanks for the party.

    I'm Bill McNeal August 24, 2006, 1:27 am
  • For instance, Paul: I love AC/DC. Quite possibly my favorite band, though maybe tied with the Beatles. More a fan of the Brian Johnson era than the Bon Scott one for AC/DC.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:28 am
  • Good night everyone. Great thread tonight — you can tell where the party’s always at cuz even the YFs came over for some fun! :-D

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:28 am
  • Congrats, SFs! You may now step off the ledges….
    Err. Step AWAY from the ledges that is.

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 1:28 am
  • Pretty short era, isn’t it Devine?
    I like AC/DC and love some of their specific songs. But they don’t really do it for me…

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:29 am
  • ‘night all. Thanks for the fun!

    yankeemonkey August 24, 2006, 1:29 am
  • Nite!

    Paul SF August 24, 2006, 1:29 am
  • See, with Metallica, I’m up and down. When it’s good, it’s *great*. Sometimes it’s a little noisy for me.
    I got into the one Megadeth album I bought…dunno why I haven’t done a little more there.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:30 am
  • Anyway, my days are twelve hours long, I suppose I should get outta here. Night everybody.

    Devine August 24, 2006, 1:31 am
